From the comments, you’d think humor didn’t exist for any generations before millennials. It’s a joke. Of course everyone doing it knows it’s stupid and not the real use of the phrase. That’s kind of the point. Can you please just let us live?
His best movie, by far, was called “A Month in the Country” with Kenneth B. It was fantastic. I also loved him in “Donovan Quick,” which I saw on the television one Christmas and never saw again, sadly.
I fell in love with young Colin in “Another Country,” back when we were both about 26. No one knew who he was in the states, back then. But, I didn’t care. He was my man then and still is to this day. I have been fortunate to meet him on several occasions. A man’s man. A gentleman. A dream.
If someone said, “Guys, the Earth is flat,” and someone showed them the facts and that person replied, “Oh shit. My mistake. I thought it was flat, but clearly I lacked the knowledge,” then ridiculing them would be cruel. A blatant and stubborn disregard for science is why they are made fun of.
That is a complete travesty.
